The St. Tammany Parish Council has voted created two more economic development districts that parish officials say will help guide commercial development in strategic areas along the Interstate 12 corridor.
By unanimous vote on Thursday, NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports the council created districts in the vicinity of the I-12 interchanges at La. Highway 434 north of Lacombe and Highway 1088 northeast of Mandeville.
Parish Economic Development Director Don Shea told the council last month that such districts will give the parish more tools to guide development at and near major interchanges along I-12, which he has described as the parish's "Main Street."
